Project and Sample by Kate Richbourg

When Kate got her hands on the latest tribal and trade beads brought to us from one of our African traders this project started turning those creative gears in her head! This gorgeous mix of deep pinks and purples mixed with bold brass and bright whites elevates Kate’s tribal design to magnificent heights. Wouldn’t this be a beautiful piece to gift to a friend?

Check out our Recipe Page for the basics and make your own colorways. Enjoy!
